December 17– Lesson Learned. What is the best lesson you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
I am a tugboat.
Despite the rainy days or stormy seas, I have a job to do. I am not an imposing presence, but I am adequate and surprisingly strong. Some days the waves make it impossible to see the shore, but I know it is there. Sometimes the rope between myself and the ships I guide becomes so taut it momentarily pulls me backward, out to sea. But it never snaps or unravels. And I always make it to dock.
